Oh, what a swinging time it was. The fashion design students at Moore College of Art threw their annual fashion show on Friday and knocked 'em dead. The students filled the stage in the school's auditorium with wildly creative fashions, as music ranged from Elvis Presley's blaring "Viva Las Vegas" to "Homeless," the hottest house-music song of the moment. They served up trapeze dresses in a variety of unusual materials, sequin cutoffs, fanny-hugging skirts, catsuits with mod details, binding hot pants in stretch Lycra and scandalously sheer ensembles.

Leo Tolstoy was a fashionista. They don't teach you that in Comparative Lit class. But just leaf through his 1870s masterpiece, Anna Karenina , and you'll come across enough detail on rosettes and lace sleeves that you'd think he was a judge on Project Runway. And then there's velvet. Don't get him started on velvet. Flip to Chapter 22 for a memorable ballroom scene in which he dresses Anna in "a black, low-cut, velvet gown, showing her full throat and shoulders, that looked as though carved in old ivory, and her rounded arms, with tiny, slender wrists.

AT THE Culver City, Calif., funeral Saturday of Chris Penn ("Reservoir Dogs"), the New York Post's Page Six says, some of Hollywood's top tough guys (brother Sean Penn, Jack Nicholson, James Gandolfini, Tom Sizemore) came to pay their respects. So it's not so surprising that a scuffle ensued. The New York Daily News says Sean Penn became furious when a paparazzo was spotted taking pictures at Holy Cross Cemetery. Sources told the Daily News that Mark Ruffalo took the memory card from the photographer's camera.

DEAR ABBY: I have been in an on-again/off-again relationship with a man for 16 years — more on than off. We have two boys together. He recently moved back in, and things are going well. We're in our 30s, and I'm ready to be more than girlfriend and boyfriend. I'd like to ask this special man in my life to marry me, but I'm not sure if a woman should ever propose marriage to a man. Should I go ahead and do it, or just be patient? — Longing for More in Texas DEAR LONGING FOR MORE: By all means, ask him to formalize your relationship.

The fur flies in Fantastic Mr. Fox. And then, when the titular poultry-thief-turned-newspaper-columnist stands quiet and still in the face of adversity, his fur just gently ruffles. In Wes Anderson's captivating stop-motion animation take on the Roald Dahl children's book, the texture of the fur, the glow on the faces from a dusky light, the cut of the suits (of course these creatures wear clothes!) - they're simply mesmerizing. Witty and wonderful, Fantastic Mr. Fox is the perfect Thanksgiving entertainment: There are enormous feasts and a break for sports (whack bat, a zigzag amalgam of cricket, baseball, and rounders)

When Phyllis Simpson looks at a dog's coat, she sees a sweater. Or a blanket. Or a scarf. "Whenever I walk in the park and see someone walking a dog with long hair, I stop and talk," she said of her constant quest for the fur she knits into fuzzy, warm garments. The afghan on her lap yesterday was not Afghan, but striped with copper-colored yarn taken from a golden retriever. The silky, lightweight blanket is moth-proof and doesn't shrink when wet. There's only one problem.

THE FRESH PRINCE is coming back to TV. Sort of. People mag is reporting that Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith are teaming with UPN to produce a sitcom about their home life. The show couple may not be portrayed as celebrities, however, and it's unlikely that Will and Jada will star in the series. What the sitcom might use for comedic fodder is the fact that the marriage is the husband's second and the wife's first. Will, 34, and Jada, 31, have been married for five years now and have a son, Jaden Christopher Syre, 4, and a daughter, Willow Camille Reign, 2. Will has a son, Trey, 10, from his marriage to Sheree Zampino.

In June, the Philadelphia Zoo announced the births of a jaguar and two snow leopards. Two months later, their genders are finally known. They're all boys. Soon the cubs should make their public debuts. The jaguar cub, the first one born at the zoo's First Niagara Big Cat Falls, just got the name Lucha, which means "fight" in Spanish. He might even be on view by the end of the week, said Tammy Schmidt, curator of carnivores. He's already been exploring the outdoor exhibit area, but the viewing window has been blocked off, so he can get familiar with those surrounding before getting used to gawking and pointing humans.
